Main Street Cafe Bar & Grill's owners, the Trifos family, curate a menu that celebrates their Greek heritage and showcases laid-back European eats. Salty kalamata olives dot the 10-inch vegetarian pizza ($9.95), while the Zeus steak pita ($10.95) heroically piles thin slices of rib eye, mozzarella, and donair sauce higher than the summit of Mount Olympus ($7.95). Greek spices rain down upon the half roast lemon chicken ($10.95) and, on the bar bites menu, the greek nachos partner pita chips with gyro meat, tzatziki, and tiny Trojan horses made of feta cheese ($7.95).
Many evenings, live music or the strains of karaoke melodies accompany the beat set by noshing jaws, and patrons are encouraged to show their appreciation by showering performers with phyllo dough.
